This morning at 6:45 the sun was rising to another perfect day with no wind. After yesterday's move I felt tired. It wasn't a long trip but I still have to go through all the same packing routines.
Decided I would stay around home and relax today. Had a big breakfast and checked in on Dolly's adventures.
She still hasn't gotten the power line to the house repaired. But our very nice neighbors brought over hot coffee and an extension cord long enough to go from their house to ours. Great to have such thoughtful friends. Now Dolly can have some heat.
Here are some pictures of the damage the ice storm did to our lovely trees.
The power line fell across our road, so the county came out and put a sign up closing the road till the power company can fix our line.
Tom came over this morning and offered a sewer pipe cleaning rod to try to unclog my sewer line. After some thought last night I decided to take the advice of one of my commenters, MCA and call a pro. Just thinking of 100 gallons of raw sewage blowing out of a small pipe could be devastating if I managed to unplug it. 😞 So, the solution to my tank problem will be a phone call to Yuma Monday morning 😀
Visited with Tom, Deb, Shane and Cathy several times this afternoon and that's the extent of my activities today.

As the sun set,
we called it a night and Yuma and I came home to fix dinner. We had steak and I had potatoes and green beans. Finished up with dessert and a little 📺 while I finished my blog. Tomorrow, I will drive into the Cargo Muchacho Mountains and explore a few mines.
See you later.
I hope you can get your tanks straightened out without too much trouble. That's a messy job. Better to leave it to an expert. Everyone looks very warm and comfy sitting around and chatting.😃 Yuma really knows how to get the pets he deserves! Have a fun trip tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dolly. Sure hope today is the day they come and fix the power. Been long enough.Delete
Good idea of leaving that job for the pros! It's been icy and snowy all weekend here. Looks like we'll have a little yard clean up to do after all this ice. Enjoy that nice warm weather!ReplyDelete
Thanks Steve. I hear you have been getting lots of overtime from this ice storm. Just be careful. The weather here is wonderful 😊Delete
Doug, you'll need to take the RV into a place an RV lot that has connections for sewer and water so John can get in the tank and power wash it. He won't need to go inside, we do all the tank cleaning from the outside. But, we do need your coach to be at a water and sewer connection because we need the sewer to go into the proper place!! I always tell my clients to put water into the tank until it is 3/4 full and then drive the rig to the RV space they are going to get for the day, the driving and turns will help break lose the mountain that likely clogging the tank drainage. If you were closer to me, I would just have you come to my place as I have a service bay here for the boon dockers. John may know of place close to you which will let you pull in to get it cleaned out. For sure don't try to clean or break it up out there in desert because you're right, it could become a disaster. I sure hope Dolly gets some power back soon. Those ice storms are nasty.ReplyDelete
Always knew you were full of it !Delete
Sounds good MCA. Left an email and will call John on Monday morning. Tank is close to full so getting critical I do something very soon.Delete
So sad about all your trees. I sure hope they get your electricity back online soon. As to the tank ... well you are on your own my friend!! Luckily that hasn't happened to me ..... YET!! I'm writing down that name, just in case.ReplyDelete
Always hate when the limbs on the White Pines break. Don't ever grow back. Let you know how the tanks work out.Delete
I remember an ice storm like that back in the 70's here in Ontario. It damaged a lot of beautiful trees and our vehicles had a sheet of thick ice on them for a couple of days. Hope Dolly soon gets power. what a stark difference in her pictures and yours! Have fun today in the mines!ReplyDelete
I hope so too. Been long enough. Hate to have Dolly in such a mess, but glad I'm not there. 😀Delete
Wow..those pictures of home! Always nice to have good neighbors! Good for you for going the professional route on the tank. Looks lovely sitting outside.ReplyDelete
Quite a contrast from Dolly at home and me sitting in the nice warm sun. It was nice the neighbors ran a line over for Dolly. Hooe it's fixed today. Been too long.ReplyDelete
It's interesting to see the difference in the weather between Ogilby and Wellton. You woke up to no wind and we woke up to wind coming from the feed lot. Yuk! Have a nice exploration day.ReplyDelete
Not good. Hate wind but luckily we don't have it every day. Lots of great days.Delete
Hoping that Dolly got her power back. Good luck with the Sewer.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time,
Thanks Rick. Still no power.ReplyDelete
